Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Ha. Mim. (1) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) Lo! We have appointed it a Lecture, in Arabic that haply ye may understand. (3) It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures). (4) Then should We turn the message away, disregarding you, because you are a transgressing people? (5) How many a prophet did We send among the men of old! (6) And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him. (7) so We destroyed those who were mightier in courage than they. And the example of the ancients has passed away. (8) (Muhammad), if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will certainly say, "The Majestic and All-knowing God has created them". (9) Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way; (10) And Who sendeth down water from the sky in (due) measure, and We revive a dead land therewith. Even so will ye be brought forth; (11) He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride. (12) In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)." (13) And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning. (14) Yet they assign to Him some of His own (created) worshipers! Clearly, the human is unthankful. (15)
